Digitized from a shellac record, at 78 revolutions per minute. Four stylii were used to transfer this record.They are 3.5 mil truncated eliptical, 2.3 mil truncated conical, 2.8 mil truncated conical, 3.3 mil truncated conical. These were recorded flat and then also equalized with Turnover: 400.0, Rolloff: -18.0.
The preferred version suggested by an audio engineer at George Blood, L.P. is the equalized version recorded with the 3.5 mil truncated eliptical stylus, and has been copied to have the more friendly filename.

Boll Weevil, 1939
"Boll Weevil" is an American folk standard known to be at least a century old, with the first known version written in 1908 (Charley Patton) and first recorded in 1924 (Gid Tanner). Lead Belly is credited with popularizing the tune, recording its most recognizable version in 1934. This version for Musicraft from 1939 sounds almost identical to the 1934 version, so it could be a reissue.
